The best of East
A tour of 17 days, by train (first segment) then buses from April 12th to April 27th.
The total distance traveled was 1200 miles
The following is the actual
GPS trace of our trip:
All five cities suffered from the rule of Nazi Germany followed by the Russian occupation.
Hitler and Stalin left a trail of brutality. While the degrees of their
suffering were quite different, this trip inpressed us a great deal. We enjoyed
some beautiful sites, but we certainly felt, in particular, the emotion of
the Polish people's hatred of the Russians.
